COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special light beer containing only 3.5% alcohol and approximately 35% fewer calories than regular lager beer. But every bit as thirst-quenching and refreshing.

The best of the lights. Worth it if you’re packin’ on a few extra pounds.

Not a good beer. Only drinkable if served really cold. Poor aroma and plain watery taste.

Bottle. Pours clear golden, white head, and some lacing. Aroma of grain and yeast. Taste is sort of watery, grain and cereal notes, a bit of a metallic taste. nothing special just another pale lager.

I’m excited. I acquired this like you would a fruitcake. It was passed down and around until it came into my hands. I am more than happy to try it. I’ve been wanting to for some time. It pours nicely with a pretty nice head. Right away I pick up a grassy aroma. It has the appearance of a light beer, pale yellow, very clear. Taste is worse than I expected. It tastes sorta like Alka Seltzer. It has some citrus notes, and I taste some biscuityness. It has a mild hop flavor and it is slightly bitter. Do I taste corn? Yes I do. Mouthfeel is okay. It is watery and the carbonation is crazy on the tongue. Overall, the wait was not worth it. I would put it a notch below Bud Light.

No off flavors, just extremely watered down and bland. No taste. I didn’t hate it.

Bottled. Pours pale color small amount of lacing. Aroma is lots of corny adjuncts. Flavor is sort of insipid and malty caramel corn quality.

12 oz bottle served in pilsner glass. Appearance: pours a thick, pillowy white head that drops slowly with little to no lacing. Color is clear pale straw with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: surprising bit of aroma for the style. There is a definite breadiness and some grass as well. Mouthfeel: very light and watery, with a quick, drying finish. Flavor: mirrors the aroma. Breadiness and some sweetness from the barley, a mild bit of grassy hops. Overall: for light beers, probably the best I have tried. It actually has flavor and aroma. Essentially tastes like a watered down Euro lager.

From the bottle. Surprised I have not rated this until now. Pale yellow color with a modest white fizzy head. Light toasted barley malt and clean hop note. Thin, watery body. Grainy taste with thin clean hop finish. A pretty typical light beer which I drank from time to time years ago.

No aroma, lack of flavor is offset by a light bitternes that is lingering like Natural light

A very bland thirst quencher. At least there were no ’off’ flavours. Actually not that bad, but doesn’t really have any taste. Just a very basic lager.

Appearance: pale, clear gold with a surprising finger of electric white head that stuck around a bit. Aroma: light grainy must, hint of skunk, light pepper. Taste: as the aroma indicates, but slightly sweet. Finish: short, watery, and mineral. Notes: A crappy pale lager as one would expect. Something weird happened, though. The next day I had one straight out of the bottle, directly after a killer workout, and it was much, much more appealing. Tried the same thing the next day: workout followed by a bottle right out of the fridge. It was darn refreshing and actually enjoyable. Maybe its light, watery crappiness makes it the perfect post-workout beer. Upping the score by a full point in return. Extra bottles left over from New Year’s Eve party.
